After Monday’s Body Pump class, I wasn’t too sure how ready I was going to be for a swift return. I spent the last couple of days stretching out my armpits and arms in every doorway I came across. Yesterday on my run my upper body felt sore with every step! My legs and feet were just fine and those are the parts that got worked! My shoulders, however, were another story! Ha! But today came, nonetheless, and I found myself in Lynnwood at the gym, again, lined up behind a weight set ready to go. I swore to myself, though, that if the instructor started going after the triceps again that I was out of there. Sure enough, 2/3 of the way through the class she started talking about tank top season and the triceps! Of course I just dove in and did the workout, I didn’t walk out. 😉 Again, the class was fabulous. Last time I did it, I didn’t go beyond the five pounders, but today I pushed just a little because the small ones felt too small. It was definitely heartening to feel a little growth so soon after restarting the classes.
It’s super satisfying to step back into daily working out. I’m pleasantly surprised at what an esteem boost it is. ❤️
